According to a document that has emerged on the Football Leaks Website, Barcelona agreed to pay Liverpool a lump-sum of 64.98-Million-Pounds for the Uruguayan forward in 2014. Suarez was serving a ban at the time of his move however that didn’t deter the Catalan Giants in their chase of him.
This news might not be music to the ears of the Liverpool faithful who were told by the club that Barcelona paid 75-Million-Pounds to lure Suarez away from the Merseyside.
In addition to misleading their fans on the transfer fee, Liverpool higher ups also concealed a fact that Barcelona still owes Liverpool a payment of 12.98-Million Pounds on July 31, this year.
Although his proposed transfer fee was met with skepticism by some Barcelona fans – who questioned the disciplinary record of the Uruguayan, Suarez has silenced his critics with some brilliant performances since his move to the Camp Nou.
He has scored 68-goals and assisted another 37 to his team-mates in just 86 appearances for Barcelona till date. Thus, while his transfer fee was huge, Suarez has justified his price tag with some amazing performances for Barcelona to date.
